A Flydubai Boeing 737-800 aircraft, registration number A6-FEE performing flight FDB813 from Dubai (United Arab Emirates) to Abha (Saudi Arabia), was en-route at about 270 NM east of Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
The aircraft had a left-hand side Air Conditioning (A/C) PACK failure after takeoff from Dubai that could not be reset by the flight deck crew (FDC) and the flight continued as planned. During the descent to Abha, at FL255, FDC reported pressurization problems when the cabin altitude warning horn sounded and passengers’ Oxygen masks deployed. The initial diversion requested by the FDC was to Taif, which was denied by ATC. Instead, the crew was granted permission to divert to Jeddah where they continued and landed uneventfully.
Neither Injuries to persons nor damage to aircraft resulted from this occurrence
